Today, I want to hammer home one point and one point only: DO NOT GIVE UP ON YOUR KICKSTARTER HALFWAY THROUGH I looked at Pamela Devine’s Kicktraq before I saw her project and just thought, damn, why did she quit? Let’s compare and contrast her fundraising progression compared to a few others. View Pamela Devine’s […]
Mercifully, your Kickstarter project does not have to be *perfect* to succeed. But, doing each portion to the best of your ability does have an affect.

You never know if the musicians you encounter are going to be the whimsical, artsy type that don’t care for the details of business or if they’ll be smart, intellectual, business-oriented people in addition to being good at music.
